Flower Food For Thought®

Welcome to the Flower Food For Thought® Program

Caring for and educating the flower industry, one bloom at a time!

Because we can all agree that an educated consumer is a repeat purchaser, and a growing educated consumer base means a growing flower industry!

The Flower Food for Thought® packet designs inspire consumers to engage with their floral purchases. The program educates and imparts good care and handling tips, as well as fun facts about flowers for the entire floral industry.


Fun and Non-Technical

Created with fun and nontechnical messaging to encourage consumers to use their flower food packets, the program includes 40-60 different designs in three different categories: care and handling, flower meaning and fun facts. Using the packet packaging as a mini billboard, each sachet carries an entertaining design and message. For example, a packet design depicts a dehydrated flower yelling out, “I’m thirsty,” and the reverse side of the sachet provides instructions on quenching the flower’s thirst stating, “Flower food solution keeps me fed, hydrated and fabulous!”
